"As the Thanksgiving season is upon us, the inevitable question of 'What are you thankful for?' is a common topic of conversation. There are the usual answers of friends and family. I’m thankful for those too. I’m grateful to have many amazing people that I call friends who are scattered across the globe. Some of these people I’ve known my whole life since I’ve grown up a few blocks away from them, and some of these people I’ve only recently met at Northern but make me feel like I’ve known them my whole life. I also have the most wonderful, supportive and interesting family.

Fans attending a recent Wolves match in the Northern State University Barnett Center have been treated to an impressive sight: a brand new, center-hung scoreboard in Wachs Arena.

The scoreboard, installed this summer by Daktronics, is the largest collegiate center-hung video display system in the state of South Dakota—and it’s just one of the recent upgrades completed in the Barnett Center.
